Check out what we found this morning on our run! This thing was HUGE!! I let zeb get down to get a better look and he loved it. I was going to have him touch the shell- but an old man stopped at the same time as us and was VERY concerned that the turtle was going to bite zeb's finger off- so I had to keep Zeb at a distance. The "older crowd" at swan creek is always so concerned about my kiddos.

yup, those turtles do bite, although I don't know that he could bite a finger OFF but zeb probably wouldn't enjoy the bite anyhow. we found the biggest turtle the day I went into labor with Katie. we went on this 3 mile hike and part of it was marshy. it was so cool.

Dear Leisy, hello, it's Katya from Tver city Russia. Do you remember our crazy English library club?
so You scared me half to death with this post.
it is a SNAPPING TURTLE if I/m not mistaken. So keep you fingers out of reach of it. Next time you meet the creature you may want to try and tickle her with a stick instead of your finger.
